Visibility Matters: Dementia Edition

April 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Visibility Matters: LGBTQI+ and Aging: Dementia Edition (In Person)

As LGBTQI+ people age and need supportive services to meet their aging goals, many of them question whether it is safe to share with their providers that they are LGBTQI+ due to stigma they have witnessed and experienced over their lifetimes. Those issues can be compounded for those living with dementia.

LGBTQI+ people are uniquely impacted by dementia and people who care for them will benefit from this training. The Visibility Matters training helps care providers gain the tools needed to create a safe place for LGBTQI+ people to be their authentic selves so that we can meet their unique needs. The training provides information about how to be more aware, sensitive, and responsive to LGBTQI+ older people living with dementia.

Visibility Matters is an excellent training for long term care facilities, medical professionals, senior centers, in-home care providers, case managers, or anyone serving people living with dementia in Pima County.
